don't know about that as someone who lives in downtown manhattan. a lot of us which the iraq war had never happened, but i think had 9/11 not hand, they would have found a way to have the iraq war anyway. you could make the argument that thanks to the work of our troops, and this president, that terrorism has been neutralized more than ever. >> but we don't have hab us corpus now. >> there's that too. for me it is a day that always will remind when people are screaming which side are you on with us or the terrorists. i like to say i'm on the side of anyone who is trying to solve the problems peacefully. >> right. any -- any religion that wants to end violence is fine as long as it's christian. that's your point. >> john: yes as long as it's christian. because violence is okay when my side does it. not religion is responsible hard core right-wing fundamentalists are responsible. >> right. >> john: we see it -- we saw it 11 years ago with the predominantly saudiw terrorists. america was attacked by zero iraqi, and zero afghans. >> yes and the worst attack happened wit
demonstrated the courage to oppose the war in iraq, as president he showed the determination to bring our troops back home. [ applause ] barack obama is the kind of leader my father wrote about in "profiles and courage." he doesn't just do what is easy, he does what is hard. he does what is right. my father couldn't run for a second term. it was left to his brothers, his family and the generation they inspired to fight for the america they believed in. now it's up to a new generation our children's generation to carry america forward. so let me say to the young and the young at heart, barack obama is only president because you worked for him because you believed in him because uconn vinceed your parents to vote for him. young people have always led america towards a brighter future. it happened in 1960. it happened in 2008 and if you show the same spirit in this election as you did in the last, i know that we'll make history again on november 6. thank you.

to take on iraq and afghanistan. al qaeda is nothing more than an interdependent ngo of a very pernicious kind. tavis: interdependence, we heard some of this at the rnc, and we have heard some of that at the democratic convention this week, but speak to me about this notion, this gospel of american exceptionalism that some americans are still preaching. >> tavis, that is such an important question. politicians have to do it. when president obama was elected, he had made a speech where he talked about america is part of the world, and he went to istanbul and cairo in his first year and talked about independence and the need to work together, and he was punished by the media and his own party, and the result is he talks mainly about america, we are number one, god bless america, and i do one god to bless america, but i want them to bless the whole world. the focus on the american exhibition where, first of all, every nation thinks it is exceptional. in switzerland, they talk about it, and in france, they talk about it that the french think similarly. and this does not mean that we are excep

reason i am standing here tonight. because in the faces of those young veterans who come back from iraq and afghanistan, i see my grandfather, who signed up after pearl harbor, marched in patton's army, and was rewarded by a grateful nation with the chance to go to college on the gi bill. in the face of that young student who sleeps just three hours before working the night shift, i think about my mom, who raised my sister and me on her own while she worked and earned her degree; who once turned to food stamps but was still able to send us to the best schools in the country with the help of student loans and scholarships. when i listen to another worker tell me that his factory has shut down, i remember all those men and women on the south side of chicago who i stood by and fought for two decades ago after the local steel plant closed. and when i hear a woman talk about the difficulties of starting her own business, i think about my grandmother, who worked her way up from the secretarial pool to middle-management, despite years of being passed over for promotions because she was a woman

and iraq. >> i find that sort of understandable. go you think about it, the republicans have been out of the white house since '92. back in '92, the national security threats were other countries. from '92 through 2000, you had members of what became the bush war council involved in national security issues all dealing with iraq. so they come into office in 2001 and they sit down with the clinton beam and the clinton beam said really what you need to worry about is al-qaeda. and what the bush people hear is the biggest threat to our national security is a bunch of guys sitting on a mountain top in afghanistan? >> eliot: it was a foreign language. >> it was a foreign language to them. the inther of 2001 was -- the summer of 2001 was chin tbha, it was russia, it was north korea. the standard national security stuff from ten years earlier. >> eliot: also the residual anger, tbrus -- tbrus ration that the job hadn't been completed. wolfowitz and the others were there at the pentagon saying we want to tbsh the job. >> ri
detroit should go bankrupt, you're going to hear about ending the war in iraq, he's going to say that thing about every american getting their fair shot and playing by the rules. if you're a fan, a fan enough to go to a speech like this, you likely know what you're going to hear in broad strokes. today, today on the campaign trail, there was this moment in ohio where the crowd totally thought that president obama was going somewhere that he was not actually going. they started to audibly react as if he was talking about something that they pretty clearly really wanted him to talk about. but he was not going where they thought he was. listen. >> now, there was one person at governor romney's convention last week who wasn't entirely on script. no, no -- >> no, no. the crowd is sort of half booing and half starting to applaud. and a lillal excitement that president obama is about to talk about the off skrift guy from last week, right? he's going to talk about this clint eastwood thing, but that's not what the president is about to do at all. behold an ortorical letdown in ohio. >> t
obama, took her seat, front row here, just stage left in charlotte. as 47 veterans from the iraq and afghanistan war now make their tribute on stage. this was set up for the veterans. they moved out of here a few moments ago. this was an area reserved for the vice-president. he could do anything he wanted with it tonight, at the moment, michelle obama is there with her mother in the front row. that's the best seat in the house. the worst seat in the house is section 201. you could not get any further from the stage, top row, 201. at 4:00 today, section 201 was filled, five hours ago. that's how long the delegates and supporters have been waiting for these big speeches tonight. we are reaching a boiling point. remember, this was expected to be an outdoor event. so the delegates inside had tickets on tuesday night and wednesday night. that's how they gained access to the proceedings tonight. as for the other 40,000 tickets, they are simply out of luck after the venue was cancelled. one reminder, 2008, stage right, there is a barack obama picture, it looks like the campaign of 2008
, they were fighting that war alongside a second war in iraq. two of the longest wars in american history fought at the same time, by a population of troops that makes up less than 1% of the american population. think about that. we have put an incredible burden on a proportionately tiny sliver of our population. and they did not get to those wars on their own. they didn't start those wars. the government sent them to do that work, in our name, right? a grateful nation, and all that. well, now americans coming home from those wars have an unemployment rate that is 35% higher than the national rate of unemployment. everybody's having a hard time in this job market, right? but veterans coming home from these wars have been at war. they have been doing things at their job for their deployment that employers may not understand on a resume. kandahar and baghdad don't exactly easily compare to the other addresses that employers are seeing on people's application for work. so the unemployment rate for vets is significantly higher, 35% higher than it is for the rest of the country. but that disad

[applause] >> if obama is given a second term what types of changes in his administration or his cabinet, what changes do you see happening that will help achieve his goals? >> obama in his personal appointments has to be a little cautious in the first term. partly because he was a new he needed to figure out how to operate and maneuver so he started with some clinton people and he realized pretty soon that the clinton people were trying to block him. they were trying to block him because they are traditional democrats. if you look in bob woodward's book he talks about the fact that again and again on iraq and
they are not arabs. if we look at iraq they are trying to shape the future of iraq are not arabs with iran and turkey. weakness in the leadership in the world from states like egypt, syria, iraq have been marginalized for one reason or another the decision making process is very slow and we have the leadership there. they are following and think they will get involved like the affairs and the middle east. al jazeera is still trying to sort out its bloody civil war met in the 1990's, so we have a sense of malaise and weakness and vulnerability, marginalization. and here comes the islamists who are absolutely excellent at the marginalization on the part of the u.s. in particular. in his political and not religious because the islamists now, the extremists are trying to back up the frenzy of these alienated youth and other alienated. he is allowing this to take place to the criticism from the extreme islamists and allowing against the americans so they wouldn't focus on the injustices taking place and unemployment, problems with the minorities, egypt, securities has tremendous problems. hundreds of peop
